The first step in programming studies is understanding what an algorithm is. The use of flowcharts helps with this because it makes it easy to describe basic algorithms without knowing the syntax rules of specific programming languages.
Creating Flowcharts when Learning Programming
There are many ways through which we can create flowcharts. We can draw them using paper and a pen (or pencil). We can alternatively use a specific program for creating diagrams, and we can also use software applications that were designed specifically for creating flowcharts. One of these software applications is the Diagram Designer.
Converting Code in Python to Flowcharts
The pyflowchart is highly useful when doing the first steps. It creates flowcharts that assist with understanding the code. We use flowchart when explaining the basic topics in the Introduction to Programming in Python course. This course is available on Udemy. We strongly believe that pyflowchart can be highly useful for those doing their first steps.
